Hi Malcolm, Tks for your advice.
You understand my need completely. Problem is now solved as stated at the bottom of this posting. > I believe that in case 1) you want to see the > directory usr on the final CD containing > subdirectory home etc. > > And in instance 2) you want to see the > directory user-A on the final CD containing > document-AAA etc. > > In the command > mkisofs -r -J -o cd_image.iso dir/ > the directory 'dir' does not actually appear on the > CD.

SOLUTION; $ mkisofs -U -R -o cdimage.raw -graft-points \ usr/home/user-A/document-AAA/=/usr/home/user-A/document-AAA 2 (two) folders then created; 1) user. Under this folder usr/home/user-A/document-AAA/subdirectories+files (full path) 2) rr_remove This is an empty folder I don't know how to get rid of the empty folder 'rr_remove'. If no solution I will burn a CD to test Lot of thanks for your HINT B.R. Stephen _______________________________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
